Did you try setting a destination for your navigation and see if that gives you the directional arrows?

This was on XDA, you can try and if doesn't work revert back. You don't have top do the checksum as it will change on it's own when you "write". Here's what I found, copied and pasted here:

"Originally Posted by sheltonfilms

2015 Fusions have this bit different: 720-05-01 bit 11 (3rd HEX digit incremented by 1)

With NavIPC*720-05-01*D8B8*0000*00BD*
without IPC*720-05-01*D8A8*0100*00AE*

A changes to B. Also add 1 to checksum. This changes "compass" to "navigation."

Further to the above, I checked on my MKC and I had made a change on IPC 720-05-01 changing it from
D028 0000 0025 to D038 0000 0035. You don't make the change in the 3rd set of the four as that changes on it's own when you hit write.
The other way you can change it is in the IPC where is a long list pf parameters you can change and go to the
one labelled Navigation/Compass and click on that and enable it and hit write. That should also do it.
Further down there should be a Turn by Turn Navigation, click and enable that as well.
Good luck.

I just completed this today. Works great!

In my situation, a 2013 Ford Explorer XLT with Sync 2

A few notes to help anyone who needs it:

Had already upgraded to Sync 2 3.10 before discovering I could put navigation on.
When using the OBD scanner with Forscan, I actually had to have the key on the next level after "on". I believe it's accessory, because the a/c and stuff turned on.
At the point where I had to write the APIM change, it kept saying it couldn't complete, but putting the key to accessory worked. In fact, I actually turned the ignition on since it was hot and I wanted a/c.
Also, in the (computer chip icon) section where it lists APIM, there were two options. It said "APIM as built" or "APIM". I personally was able to make it work with "APIM as built".
If you're doing this with a laptop, just load the navipatch onto your sync, as it will stay there til you need it, and then extract the nav files to that same usb if you only have one handy.
I was afraid master reset would erase everything, but it just resets your radio presets, etc. Took maybe 5 minutes to reboot/load and immediately was able to insert the A10 maps card.
Worked like a charm after that!

Hopefully any clues here will help folks who hit a snag. I personally found help through a lot of these posts to make sure the steps were correct. Thanks to everyone for your knowledge!
